Hi, I'm starting sw on Friday. I have a grocery delivery coming tomorrow in anticipation- can anyone recommend any essentials to add to the list please? I've done it before but it's been ages so not up to date with a and b choices etc.
Thanks in advance smile

And for treats
Freddo carmels

Big tip
East yoghurt & fruit (not cereal) for breakfast and save your healthy B for something more exciting (like a bread roll with home made burgers!)

Is East a low fat brand of yoghurt?

Do t forget reduced fat cheese (40g for a hexa) and little loaves of wholemeal bread (2 slices for a hexb). Milk of your choice- I hear you get a lot for your a choice of almond milk etc. Alpen/Alpen lights/ryvita for easy hexb...

Meat should be the lean 5% fat stuff.

I am low carbing as well (you don't have to, but it really does help me to shift the weight quicker), so butternut squash is an amazing substitute.

I cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, bung it in the microwave for 30 mins, and use it in the same way I would use a jacket potato - i.e. put curry/mince etc in it, and just eat it out of its skin. Delicious.
